Aside from your bedroom, your bathroom is the most intimate room of the house for you and your loved ones. Having a bathroom that is customized to suit your needs is an important aspect of making your home more comfortable. A newly renovated bathroom can range from adding unique features such as heated floors, custom shower enclosures, free-standing tubs, and custom vanities. Our experienced designers can help you incorporate these spa-like elements or update the style of your master or hall bath by simply replacing certain components.
Why do a bathroom remodel?
There are a number of reasons why a homeowner may consider remodeling their bathroom. It’s certain that renovated bathrooms can brighten the home. Below are some of the top reasons for a bath remodel.
Aesthetics: Does your bathroom look outdated? Are there colors that make the bathroom look very dated? Believe it or not, our designers consistently create bathrooms that offer spa-like experiences to our clients. The ultimate goal is to put focus and attention in updating all the components of the bathrooms to create an elegant, yet cozy, atmosphere. The attention to detail ranges from how to select colors that compliment one another to the layout best suited for each component.
Functionality: Most people do not think about how to make their bathrooms as functional as possible. Surprisingly, proper shelving, linen cabinets, and bathroom accessories such as towel hooks and bars all help to create a highly functional and uncluttered space.
Raise Your Home Value: Just like a kitchen remodel, bathroom remodels help increase the value of the home. A bathroom remodel is often a great way in raising the property value. The average bathroom remodel yields a return on investment (ROI) of about 60 percent. If you are considering selling your home in the next 3 to 5 years, having a newly renovated bathroom dramatically enhances the appeal of your home.
Things to consider in bathroom remodel
Renovating your bathroom into a space that is best suited for your lifestyle is most important to us. Specialty Kitchen & Bath has focused our attention in perfecting the process of remodeling bathrooms. Our expert team provides invaluable insights when designing and planning every component of your bathroom remodel.
Wet Space: Aside from powder rooms, this is perhaps the most important component in a bathroom remodel. Make sure to use a licensed, bonded, and well-respected professional in the industry to replace the shower or tub. A lot of care and attention needs to go into demoing, waterproofing, and installing of the entire wet area. Shoddy work can lead to long-term headaches and thousands of dollars in water-related damages.
Fixtures: A bathroom remodel provides an excellent opportunity to update your plumbing fixtures with a modern and unified style. Specialty Kitchen & Bath can reconfigure plumbing fixtures if necessary.
Vanity: Your new bathroom cabinetry should be both beautiful and practical and elegant. Proper storage can help your bathroom remain uncluttered.
Counters: This is an attention-grabbing piece in the bathroom as it could span over a single or double vanity. There are a few countertop materials to choose from, including quartz, granite, porcelain slab, marble and more, each providing unique characteristics and qualities. Our designers can help you decipher the pros and cons of each of these types of countertops.
Flooring: Due to the amount of moisture found in bathrooms, flooring options used in this space need to be able to handle moisture. There are various options that our designers can show and discuss with you including porcelain or ceramic tile, natural stone, or luxury vinyl tile that have waterproof capabilities. In the past decade, heated floors have also become popular luxurious feature.
Walls: Another aspect to decide in your bathroom remodel is the type of walls or accent wall you would like to have. Drywall is an obvious common choice. However, wainscoting with various materials can create amazing effects, such as tile walls in bathrooms with a wet area or shiplap style walls in powder rooms.
